My husband and I stayed in lovely Cairbre House for one night on the 1st April and it was a thoroughly enjoyable stay. I can`t speak highly enough of the warm welcome extended by Brian, the lovely accommodation and gardens and the delicious breakfast. The location is idyllic, right on the estuary and it`s less than a 10 minute walk...

I stayed here with 2 friends on a Saturday night. We chose it because of its excellent location and on the recommendation of the restaurant we were going to. To say we were impressed would be an understatement. From the moment we walked in Brian was friendly and couldn't have been any more helpful, he even drove us the 5...

Brian is a super host. I don't know how it does it all. A truly gourmet fantastic breakfast with food produced in his garden.

We only stayed one evening in this lovely historic B&B. Brian is a gracious and knowledgeable host. He shared the history of the B&B and the grounds and it's worthwhile to note that he grows a number of ingredients for his lovely breakfasts. He recommended a place for dinner which was excellent as well. Thank you for a memorable visit...

We only stayed one night at Cairbre House but I would stay again - Brian was very friendly and had lots of information about Dungarvan & surrounding areas. The room was very big and had a lovely view, and breakfast was absolutely fantastic. So beautifully presented and everything was so fresh (with lots from the garden). It was a nice...

Brian, the owner of Cairbre House B&B, is, we are sure, the reason this fantastic B&B was the best place we stayed in our 2 week visit to Ireland. The grounds are absolutely fantastic, full of plants that you will probably never see all in one place again, yet Brian has created an amazing garden within this unique micro-climate. While...

The Cairbre House is a charming B and B located on the Estuary in Dungarven, Ireland. The host, Brian, is extremely accommodating, a gifted cook AND gardner. His breakfast creations are delicious, made with fresh ingredients and garnished with fresh flowers. We enjoyed several different outside areas for viewing the estuary and its wildlife. The 2nd floor room and en...
